Therapeutic and Consulting Services

Psychotherapy/Counseling services are deeply rooted in sound clinical theory and practice from both Western and Traditional Indigenous world-views. Depth therapy is encouraged as a way to deal with symptoms as well as get to the underlying causes. Many modern therapies focus on symptom remedy and do not address the underlying psycho-spiritual causes. This keeps people in a cycle of moving from one symptom to another and predisposes the person to self medicate through the use of substances, or alcohol.

Patients are encouraged to explore unconscious causes through the use of dreams, active imagination, sandtray as part of the ongoing process. We encourage the exploration of shadow in the individual as well as how this impacts our collective psychology. Exploration of our shadow requires the courage to look deeply at the destructive and dysfunctional strata of our psychology. Through the integration of our shadow it becomes possible to harmonize with our harmful impulses so that we do not act them out.

Consultation is available to groups, agencies and communities. Eduardo travels to all parts of the world to consult and help communities understand their history and how history impacts the community in the present. In addition, we provide consultation to agency behavioral health, medical, prevention and other health providers in order to help them realize that Indigenous methods of healing, prevention and research when combined with Western approaches offer a greater opportunity for success as well as a more existentially meaningful experience for staff and the patients they treat.
